Pizza Rustica: Truly cheese pie!

3 Apr

My sons have always had a “thing” for pie…and cheese…Pizza Rustica fulfills both their dreams and was also beautiful!  The crust:  delicious!  What else can I use it for?  I’ll be figuring that out, you can be sure.  I think the one thing I might do differently is change the Pecorino Romano to Parmesan – slightly (although I know not a lot) less salty.  The book had it right:  the sweeter crust is definitely needed to off set the saltiness.     But, I’ll be making this again.

Oh, and my second favorite thing about this project?  I got to go buy a new kitchen gadget:  a fluted pastry cutter!
